Ten artists from the SouthEast Regional Hub of the Vermont Pastel Society are showing selected original pastels at The Gleanery restaurant in Putney. Please find some time in your busy day to stop in and enjoy the art and the food!
The artists are Carol Corliss, Monica Hastings, Lesley Heathcote, Deedee Jones, Pat McPike, Matthew Peake, Gill Truslow, Rodrica Tilley, Maggie Smith, and Carol Stephens. These are folks who live in the area, may be your neighbors or friends, may be people you know on a professional level. All are experienced artists who enjoy working in pastel, a medium that consists of pure pigment mixed with enough binder to form a stick. Pastels have been used by artists for centuries. When framed, they are highly archival and permanent. These paintings are all for sale. To purchase a painting, please contact the artist directly. There is a price list available with contact information.
The Vermont Pastel Society is an all volunteer organization founded in 1999 and currently has about 100 members. The purpose of the VPS is to build and strengthen connections among pastel artists. The VPS hosts 2 large exhibits per year, numerous workshops statewide, and now has several regional hubs which promote their own exhibits and events as well.
The Gleanery is open from Wednesday to Sunday. http://www.thegleanery.com
